Same Problem Here!

Did clean install of Mountain Lion on 2009 MBP. Any app associated with iSight will not open. Facetime and Photobooth both show rainbow lines after 5 seconds. Brought to Apple Store, and they said it was software related. They did another clean install which worked fine in store but when I got home, the problem came back :(

2012 13" MBA Has Same Problem

I had the same problem with my 2012 13" MBA. I noticed it after upgrading to Mountain Lion a few days ago. I took a couple of pictures for evidence, then I restarted and the camera worked.

I'm a little concerned that it's going to be a reoccurring issue. At this point with it working, is there any reason to go to a genius bar or contact Apple?
